Southern League Central Division 2018/19
12th May, 2018 at 10:16pm
 
The 2018/19 season sees us become founder members of the Southern League Premier Central division. After 70+ years in the Eastern Counties, this season will see us competing in our third different League in the past four seasons!

Another season in a new League offers anopportunity to renew some old football acquaintances from our ECL days, re-visit some newer friends from the Conference North and of course visit a tranche of clubs that we've never met.

Here's the list.....

Map of Step 3 Leagues..... http://goo.gl/HDFmG2
And the journey distances, ground to ground, and travel times............

Leiston. 24 miles. 0.43 mins
Needham. 45. 1 hr 19 mins
Kings Lynn Town. 76. 1.30
Royston 93. 1.54
St Ives. 95. 1.59
St Neots. 98. 2.00
Biggleswade. 105. 2.11
Hitchin. 107. 2.15
Kettering. 121. 2.21
Rushden 121. 2.24
Barwell. 160. 2.57
Bedworth. 160 2.49
Coalville. 170 3.04
Rushall Olympic. 185. 3.19
Chasetown 187 3.13
Stratford Town. 178. 3.15
Tamworth. 189. 3.25
Redditch. 199. 3.30
Alvechurch. 198. 3.32
Hednesford. 202. 3.33
Halesowen. 201. 3.37
Stourbridge. 207 3.46

Of course this is all subject to an FA change at the 11th hour.

As far as promotions and relegations are concerned, what can be ascertained so far;
Step 2 & Step 3;
The Conference will only allow 3 down from each of its Regional Divisions, so still 2x3 down but only the champions of each Step 3 division guaranteed promotion with further divisional and cross divisional playoffs. Like the Conference the other leagues deem 4 down from a 22 team division too many. This means each of the 4 divisions will only relegate 3 clubs.

All we need now are the fixtures........

Trouble at Nuneaton... If they were to go under would that mean a reprieve for Gainsborough and affect allocations at step 3?

*****UPDATE*****

The unfortunate demise of ShawLane Aquaforce has resulted in a re-jigging of Step 3 clubs.

The Central Division as a result loses Hednesford to the NPL and gains Banbury from SLS.

Other changes are likely and probably will not be finalised until July when the Leagues AGMs are held.

This update will NOT affect Lowestoft who will remain in the Central Division for season 2018/19.

Look like Banbury will have similar problems to those inflicted on LTFC a while back with a late switch of leagues with the geographical problems that will come with it.
